Pony Express-Coming to KBF in '08!

Pony Express will be the latest addition to Knott’s Berry Farm. It will be one of the first motorcycle-style roller coasters to open in the US. It is a “MotoCoaster” manufactured by Zamperla. It will be 44′ high, 1300′ long, and have a launch of 0-38 m.p.h. in 3 seconds. The Layout of Pony ExpressSome people have been disappointed with this coaster. There were rumors about a Maverick style Intamin TerraCoaster for a similar location as Pony Express. The coaster’s layout is unimpressive, being very small, short, and slow. I, however, am excited about Pony Express. This coaster fits into the limited space that KBF has. It has a great theme for the Ghost Town area of the park. The unique ride system will be interesting to try out. Pony Express will be a fun ride for the whole family, not just thrill seekers. While the layout doesn’t look too impressive, the ride’s close interaction with surrounding structures will make it fun to ride. Hopefully, I will get to try this one out this summer!
